The reconstruction process is almost complete.
The main exhibition will start its activity in the summer, writes "Zvyazda".
— At the moment, we are trying to open the old castle for visitors as soon as possible, so now work is being done to break down the reconstruction period in turn. The bulk of the work has already been completed, leaving only two rooms that require longer and more painstaking restoration work. Currently, negotiations are underway to allocate funding that will allow you to fully pay for the amount of work performed and allocate these premises to a separate stage of restoration, and open everything else to visitors so that they can get access to the museum exposition and the history of Grodno in general. This is, accordingly, an opportunity to earn money on tourism and at the same time compensate for part of the expenses incurred, but the main thing is to finally get access to the historical value of the Grodno region, — said the chairman of the Grodno Regional Executive Committee Vladimir Karanik.
Recall that the restoration of the Old Castle takes place in several stages, and what Grodno residents and guests of the city observed during the year is the construction of the first stage.
It includes the construction of the entrance tower and the middle wall, the restoration of the fortress wall with a gallery between the towers, the construction of the adjacent measuring house, cottage, other buildings and the necessary communications.
As planned by the Grodno authorities, where possible, preserve the original look and authenticity, and where does not work — recreate on archival materials and written sources as close as possible to its original appearance.
By the beginning of summer, the doors for visitors will open in four rooms allocated for the exhibition. The exception is two halls, where work will continue on the second stage of restoration.
